"King Albert"

Looks like Pujols is doing just fine. Top pick for sure. Great news. From yahoo:

Mar 26 Albert Pujols launched his fifth home run of the spring on Friday and is now batting .364 with 11 RBI, and has not struck out in 44 at bats. Even better, the Cardinals' All-Star first baseman told the St. Louis Post Dispatch that his left foot feels "awesome." Pujols has chronic plantar fasciitis in his foot, but it has not been a big issue since he underwent treatment on it in January.

Views: Forget the gaudy stats. That's expected of King Albert. The big news here is that he is having no problems with his feet. It's the only thing that brings down his fantasy value, but if the feet are good, Pujols might just warrant the top pick in your draft.

goodness i want to be in your league. I've been getting one of the last few picks in all my leagues, and grabbing Sheff and Helton, etc. Still have never gotten a high enough pick to own the guy, despite having him at #1 the past few years (never been an ARod fan).
